Has anyone got one of these cards in Canada?
If you have two cards with RFID chips in your wallet, the scanner can't read them because they confuse the information and cancel each other out...
If you're still worried about getting ripped off by someone invading your space with a notepad-like scanner, here's a tried-and-true precautionary move: Put a piece of aluminum foil in your wallet.

The agent I spoke to said not to worry, I would not be held responsible, even for charges made by another party BEFORE I get around to reporting my card lost or stolen. I checked the cardholder agreement and there it clearly says I am responsible for all charges, up until I report the card missing. Who do I believe?
I had the recent misfortune to have my CC info stolen (not from me, but from a careless merchant I had provided it to via telephone). The CC did indeed idemnify me from all the fraudulent transactions. I also gleaned from some of the back and forth that the CC company screws the defauded merchant - since one of the merchants protested a specific claim and I had to fill out some additional paperwork certifying that I had not made that particluar purchase (the other dozen or so fraudulent transactions they just took my word for it). Based on this I sense the CC compay just doesn't pay out the merchant for a bogus transation, although there are likely complicating factors that I am not aware of.Bylo Selhi wrote:The banks have to protect themselves from people who are careless(*), irresponsible(**) and/or intentionally try to defraud them. My interpretation of this apparent contradiction is that if you don't give them reason to believe you're in those sorts of categories they'll indemnify you from all unauthorized transactions, before and after your notification. Yes, that means you have to trust them—just like they have to trust you when they give you the card.
